Dangerous App Alert

Dangerous App Alert from the Ineqe Safeguarging Group

Yome Live is a dangerous live streaming app that has come onto our radar. It poses risks to children and young people in your care. Make sure you DO NOT disclose the name of this app to the young people in your care, as we know this can spark curiosity.

  • ‘Yome Live’ (pronounced Yo-Me) enables users to publicly live stream video or voice chat.
  • This live streaming app creates an easy-to-access video and chat environment frequented by adults involved in highly sexualised behaviour targeted at children and young people.
  • We observed children being sent gifts in attempts to persuade them to ‘follow’ and ‘chat privately’ with adult users.
